Despite the fact that the apartment is nice, we were shocked by the attitude of the owner. I asked about check in for up to 5 hours, but the request was ignored. The settlement was scheduled for 7, but the owner was too late. Later in the evening, we were not able to use Wi-Fi, this is what I wrote to Alban. The answer was postponed for one day, and in the end was rude and unhelpful. After the eviction, after a week (!) on this site Alban demanded money from me for the broken cornice, which fell while trying to open the window. O_o By the way, we re and put in place .... If you decide to rent this apartment, I suggest you, least, do not even approach the window))
The comment written by Polina is consistent with her attitude / with the comment I wrote about her. She is childish in the way she has to tell lies. By the way, she naturally doesn't mind to twist the truth as well.
As examples, here under, some messages about the issues she is evocating. Messages sent/received via AirBnB.
Concerning the check-in :
Ok depending of thé opening hours of the housekeeper office, I'll give her thé keys to your attention.
I may have to come to thé apartment round 8 pm to get my luggages.
Keep in touch,
So, when we'll can go inside?
Is it ok for you ?

I never met Alban but he was quick to reply to every inquiry and always very congenial. His apartment is large, stylish, clean and well-equipped. The bed is comfortable and everything works well. It is a treat to have the use of an elevator when arriving and leaving with a heavy suitcase, or after a long day of flanerie. I strongly recommend this location in a neighborhood that provides visitors with an experience of Paris that is off the tourist-track, but very lively and convenient to buses and metros and velibs for visiting other parts of the city.
Alban was a responsive host and the apartment was as described. Good location close to the metro and had no problem getting anywhere in the city with connections. Neighborhood felt safe/residential and it had a couple boulangeries a few steps away. I was with a friend and the apt was a good amount of space. It was the 4th floor up but a small elevator was available. Apt is very quiet at night and it was updated, comfortable and clean. Note that floors are very creaky; also the shower loses hot water after 10-15 min. Overall a good value.
We had a great time in Paris as we stayed for a short weekend in Albans apartment. Everything went very well and uncomplicated. The flat itself is perfect for a couple, it has everything you need and makes you feel very comfortable.
The area is nice as well, the tube is around the corner, I`d definitely come back again! Thanks to Alban for his spontaneity of accepting our booking!
After spending three weeks in Alban's apartment, I have nothing but positive things to say! The apartment itself is excellent: spacious, comfortable and clean. The apartment's location is also very good. There are many restaurants, shops and bars on the same street and it is also accessible by many different metro stops. As for Alban, he is an exceptional host! He is always reachable by either text, phone or email. One night I realized I had locked myself out of the apartment and he went by to give me spare keys at around midnight. I recommend staying in this apartment 100%. Thanks Alban!
